Very Veggie 5 Layer Lasagna…Can We Say Yummy!

Happy Friday Family! And what a better way to end the week but to post a rockin recipe. And for those of us watching our calories this has to be one recipe you will make over and over again. Switch out vegetables, make 2 pans so you can freeze one. This is also a quick stop at the store for all the ingredients meal for those on the go..
I’ll list all the ingredients and then do a step by step 🙂  So here goes….Calorie count is 369 calories for a single serving. I used an 11 x 15 pan and cut into 10 servings.

1 package Barilla Lasagna noodles ( I don’t really think the brand matters I think the calories are the same on all of them)

 1 8 oz package Kraft Natural Finely Shredded Cheese – Mozzerella 2%
1 16 oz container Nonfat small curd cottage cheese
1 15 0z container part skim ricotta cheese
1 23.9 oz jar Ragu Robusto! Pasta sauce ( I used  sauteed onion & garlic)
2 raw zucchini
2 raw yellow squash
1 bag Fresh Express baby spinach

Spray the bottom of your pan with some nonstick spray..Much easier to clean later 🙂  Pour a small amount of your sauce and layer your cooked noodles like so.
Add some spinach..This is layer 1…
Put another layer of noodles, I used 4 from this point on and add the container of ricotta cheese, add some more sauce and some more spinach. This is layer 2.
Add another layer of noodles and use a vegetable peeler to shave your zucchini & squash into slices & pieces. There is no set size you will get a variety of them. Add the remaining spinach. This is layer 3.
Add another layer of noodles and add the container of cottage cheese. This is layer 4
Layer the last of your noodles, add the rest of your sauce over the top, add your bag of cheese, yes the entire 8 oz goes on top! This will be layer 5…Place in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 90 minutes..
This was the result!! Yummy goodness and only 369 calories per serving!
